Meet The World's Tallest Teenager

Some kids don't get their growth spurts until high school, and a rare few don't have a growth spurt until college, but Broc Brown, the world's tallest teenager, was practically born taller than his peers.

In kindergarten he was 5'2", he hit the six foot mark before he officially got his "growth spurt", and at age 19 he is currently 7'8" tall...and still growing.

Broc has a genetic disorder called Sotos Syndrome, also known as cerebral gigantism, which causes "excessive physical growth" and may cause health issues such as hormonal imbalance, scoliosis and heart and kidney problems.

But despite the chronic pain Broc feels he manages to keep a smile on his face and live like a normal teen, and doctors say Broc will probably live a long and healthy life despite his disorder.

Here's hoping all your dreams come true, Broc!
